Amersham Museum is located at 49 High Street, Old Amersham, HP7 0DP

There are several local bus services which go through Old Amersham.

If you are coming by train from London, Chiltern Rail trains from Marylebone or the Metropolitan line from Baker Street go to Amersham-on-the-Hill.  From the station, there are buses to Old Amersham.

There is a very pleasant walk to the Museum from Amersham Station through woods and fields, with fine views. It takes about 15 minutes. Turn left out of the station and in 20m turn left under the railway bridge. Immediately cross the road to turn right along a footpath between houses and the railway embankment. In 50m, after the houses, turn half left up a hill, then follow a clear path through woods, staying parallel to the road. Eventually, the path descends and opens out into fields and slopes steeply down to the Church. Cross the churchyard and emerge onto the road. Turn right, walk past the Market Hall. The Museum is 150m on the right.

Free parking is available in the High Street. The nearest car park is just off the Broadway, about 300m from the Museum; this car park includes some designated disabled spaces.

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”
